A job fair to fill immediate openings for deckhands in Baton Rouge and the surrounding areas will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday at the EmployBR office at 4523 Plank Road.

The fair is sponsored by Turn Services, a push boat company, and EmployBR, the city-parish’s workforce agency.

Representatives from Turn Services will be on hand to screen candidates. All applicants are required to have a current Transportation Worker Identification Credential, pass a drug screen and physical, and disclose any criminal background issue. A criminal background will not be an automatic elimination factor.
